  • Reviewed by Former Student on September 30, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • As a graduate of this fine school, I am deeply moved by the hard working staff and the diligent students who make South Sumter High School what it was to how it has become. The hospitality of the entire school gives people the feeling of being welcome. The school might have changed its appearance, but the spirit continues to live on through its gradutes.
    Sincerely,
